Monitor deals are still in full swinging even though Prime Day has concluded. Retailers are following Amazon's annual shopping bonanza with some awesome monitor discounts.
Outside of Black Friday, Prime Day is your ticket to scoring a monitor on the cheap. Amazon's big sale started October 13 and ends October 14 at 11:59 p.m PT/2:59 a.m. ET. Prime Day deals are exclusively for Prime members. However, if you're not a Prime member, Amazon offers a free 30-day Prime membership trial as an incentive to join. You can cancel before your trial ends to avoid being charged $119 for a year of Prime.
During Prime Day, we expect to see discounts on the best monitors from just about every manufacturer. Prime Day monitor deals will markdown a range of displays from brands like Acer, Asus, BenQ, Dell, HP, LG, Samsung and more. We should see discounts from $50 to $200 or more off standard and gaming-specific monitors.
Amazon isn't the only retailer expected to offer Prime Day monitor deals next week. Best Buy, Target and Walmart announced sitewide sales that will run alongside Amazon's event. These stores will likely offer similar pricing on select monitors as well. We'll be rounding up the very best monitor deals from various retailers right here to ensure you get the best price.
If you can't afford to wait, here are the best pre-Prime Day monitor deals you can get right now.
Computer monitor buying guide 2020

- Widescreen multimedia monitors are great for immersive PC gaming and maximum productivity.
- 60Hz and up is a good refresh rate, however, competitive gamers will benefit from 144Hz and up.
